GB Labs Integrates NDI®
September 12, 2019 by Chuck Baker
GB Labs, innovators of powerful and intelligent storage solutions for the media and entertainment industries, has confirmed its formal adoption of NDI®, a brand of the Vizrt Group and the royalty free standard for IP-based production workflows for GB Labs’ range of high-speed, media-specific storage.
With NDI-enabled CORE.4 OS, GB Labs storage solutions integrate seamlessly with NewTek’s TriCaster® and VMC multi-camera video production systems, and any other NDI-aware devices and systems that are connected to a standard Ethernet local area network. This enables production directors to draw from multiple sources at speeds of up to 18,000MB/sec, which is believed to make GB Labs the fastest NAS on the market. Coupled with a feature-rich tool set built into its CORE.4 operating system, GB Labs is ideally configured to be the centerpiece of any contemporary IP media production and distribution workflow.
“NDI answered the call of the broadcast industry, which had been shouting out for a consistent IP workflow standard. We are delighted to be a part of the NDI ecosystem and look forward to ongoing work with NDI to further expand the benefits and potentials of innovative IP workflow solutions.” – Duncan Beattie, Chief Product Officer of GB Labs
NDI is the leading standard for video-over-IP, now integrated in thousands of products in the hands of millions of users. Fully resolution independent, NDI encodes far in excess of real-time for virtually any resolution including 4K and beyond. With support for customizable metadata for developers, control and communications support, resolution and format independence, the ability to work in standard networks and to gain advantages in enhanced networks, NDI is a future proof IP solution for every level of the content production industry and any content production tool manufacturer.
CORE.4 OS and other innovative storage solutions from GB Labs will feature in Hall 7 on Stand 7.B26 at IBC 2019, 13-17 September, in Amsterdam. The latest NDI developments will be featured on Stand 7.C12, also in Hall 7.
